Series 1000 and 1500 21.2 . Remove the battery hold down , battery and bat - tery tray from the unit . See Figure 21.2 . NOTE : Lubrication with grease may accelerate bushing wear . If lubrication is applied it should be in dry form such as graphite or PTFE ( Teflon ) . 20.8 . Secure the inner bushing with a new cotter pin Battery hold down and the flat washer that was previously removed . 20.9 . Move the pedal through itâs range of travel to check for binding . If binding is encountered : â¢ Bind in just a portion of the travel may be caused by a bent pedal shaft . â¢ Constant bind is likely to be caused by a bent bracket . â¢ Also check for interference between the parking brake and cruise control interlocks . Figure 21.2 20.10 . Correct any binding condition . 21.3 . Take tension off of the transmission belt idler 20.11 . Connect the brake rod to the brake pedal shaft , and remove the belt from around the idler pulley . and secure it with a new cotter pin . See Figure 21.3 . 20.12 . After any brake service is performed , test the brakes as described in steps 14.2 through 14.4 , then test - drive the tractor in a safe area that is Idler pulley free of hazards , obstacles , and by - standers before returning the tractor to service . 21 . TRANSAXLE REPLACEMENT : CVT â¢ The single speed transaxles used in our CVT riders has evolved over the years . Internals have changed . Some have had the Variable Speed Pulley integrated into the transaxle . If you are replacing a transaxle it is very important to care - fully match the transmission part numbers between the old and new . A part number on the transmission case might be the number of the case half . Visually compare the IPL drawing with Figure 21.3 the actual transaxle to assure a match . â¢ Before condemning a transaxle , check to make sure the brake is not locking up the transaxle . â¢ Check the drive belts for damage or wear and make sure they are the correct belts and are not the cause of drive problems . â¢ When replacing a transaxle within the warranty period , we have a like - kind exchange program . â¢ Out of warranty transaxles can be serviced . 21.1 . Disconnect the battery cables ( negative first and then positive ) . 34 Page: 2
Series 1000 and 1500 21.4 . Using a 7 / 8 socket and extension , remover the 21.7 . Disconnect the brake linkage where it connects nut securing the transmission pulley to the trans to the brake spring . - See Figure 21.7 . mission . See Figure 21.4 . Transmission pulley BBrraakkee lliinnkkaaggee Figure 21.7 Figure 21.4 21.8 . Use white - out to mark the position of the ferrule on the transmission shift rod . 21.5 . Remove the pulley from the unit . 21.6 . Support the frame of the unit to allow removal of 21.9 . Remove the hairpin clip securing the transmis - both rear wheels .

Hairpin clip Figure 21.6 Figure 21.9 NOTE : Leave room under the rider to allow low - ering the transaxle from the unit . 21.10 . Using a 1 / 2 â socket , remove the two hex screws securing the front of the transmission housing to the transmission support bracket . See Figure 21.9 . 21.11 . Support the transmission from below . 35 Page: 3
Series 1000 and 1500 21.12 . Using a 1 / 2 â socket and 1 / 2 â wrench , remove the 22 . TRANSAXLE SERVICE AND INTERNALS : four hex nuts securing the transmission to the CVT frame . See Figure 21.12 . â¢ Transaxles needing service within the warranty period qualify for like - kind exchange . â¢ If you are servicing transaxle internals , keep in mind that different transaxles / components have been used over the years . â¢ Carefully compare the transaxle with the illus - trated parts list when ordering components . 23 . TRACTION DRIVE BELT REPLACEMENT : HYDROSTATIC LT 23.1 . Turn - off the engine and allow all parts to cool Nuts before beginning work . Figure 21.12 23.2 . Remove the cutting deck . CAUTION : The transmission must be supported 23.3 . Identify and unplug the wires leading to the elec - during removal of the bolts . Use a helper if nec - tric PTO clutch . See Figure 23.3 . essary . 21.13 . Lower the transmission from the rider . See Fig - ure 21.13 . PTO clutch wires Figure 23.3 Figure 21.13 NOTE : There is a backing plate on the top of the frame . There may be a spacer between the frame and the transmission housing . 21.14 . Reassemble in the reverse order of disassem - bly . NOTE : If it appears that the drive belts are worn , we recommend replacing both of them when servicing the transaxle . Use original OEM belts to assure proper operation of the rider . 36
